Up To No Good Again....
Working on my Waza... Judo is a part of me and it will never go away. I am building up to my competition weight. I will prove that even at my age (34); that one can still have the power of an Olympian. I am used to the ebbs and flows of life. I have never been left with any other choice. I am supremely thankful for all who support me simply because it is nice to know you have people behind you. Then again having nobody but myself to push myself much like in this video, is my normal state. 
In Japan, I had Uchiyama-sensei, Ono-sensei, Tsuboi-sensei, Okamoto-sensei, Ishioka-sensei, Uchishiba-sensei, Koga-sensei, and many more who I could name; who looked at the prospect of seeing me at International tournaments. Judo is not an art that you can do by yourself. 
Until I can find a training partner that will go to their fullest every time out I will continue to train. Wherever there is strength to be gained; I will go.

Hello World,
I am going to share something with you, that is somewhat of a sweet story...๐Ÿ˜˜
In my 34 years of life; One must always truly love and trust their mother with all their heart...Last Sunday, I went for family dinner at my motherโ€™s home. Well to be honest, it started out from when she invited me for  breakfast, with Festival, Fried Dumpling, and Ackee and Saltfish (Cod for those who donโ€™t understand Patwah๐Ÿคฃ). Lots of laughs, a purely Jamaican family environment, pure old school reggae on vinyl filling the place with good vibes. Jamaicans with food, music, with lots of smiles and laughs and relaxation that is our people(we also like to builโ€™ up di story same time too.๐Ÿ˜„). So anyway, chilling watching the IJF Dรผsseldorf matches. After a Grand Slam Jamaican breakfast...I never knew my mother followed it closely enough to be able to tell a solid Ippon right when she sees it. That afternoon, she said that she had something to show me. We were laughing about how much stronger she knows I can throw people. She watched a couple of my videos and was like, โ€œSon, yuh haffi fling โ€˜im dung like seh yuh ah try fi bruk di grung unda di mat dem same time๐ŸคฃA joke mi a mek.โ€ Speaking our native language truly has always made me know fully that I am a Jamaican๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ. โ€œI made sure that if you guys (me, and my brothers) ever decided that back home was where you wanted to be. You will always have the chance. I saved this for you....โ€
People, this is my motherโ€™s previous Jamaican Passport. From 1976!!! It was like stepping into a time machine. This is my gateway key towards claiming Jamaican Citzen by Descent. 
This brings me one step closer towards attempting to represent @jamjaofficial @teamjamaica โ€œ34?! Son, it is only a number. How many people your age you know that can run for a whole hour outside even in the cold? Son, only you can stop yourself. Because, I have yet to meet someone who can stop you from what you want. You have much to offer Jamaica. Donโ€™t tell them, show them.

I have always wanted to represent the Jamaican National Team ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ; ever since I was little and had it instilled in me that my blood is %100 JAMAICAN. It has always been where I feel the most AT HOME.  I will prove at -81KG that our Islandโ€™s size maybe small but we are mighty. Hanover, Hopewell, Jamaica W.I.

This was me and my training partner Mori Junpei at Kurashiki Budokan, Okayama, Japan. We would train like this until Sensei had to close up the dojo and we had to go home...
It is this kind of Dedication, Determination, and Discipline that helped to shape me into who I am today. I miss my family in Japan. ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿฅ‹๐Ÿ˜”

There are a lot of people who need the validation of others to feel self worth or value. And while there is nothing wrong with that; at the end of the day. It all comes back to perception of self. .
Every week everyone should spend some time building themselves up for the road ahead for you never know where it may lead you.
.
I say the following passage unto myself, โ€œThank the Most High that I am ME and there is no other as I am. Thank ME for always believing in ME when nobody else will. Thank ME for always having the strength to get up after being knocked down. Thank ME for never allowing the impossibilities of others to be my own. THANK ME FOR BEING THE BEST ME I CAN BE.โ€
.
I have competed on and off for the past 26 years in Judo. And unlike many of the judoka I see today with massive support and following. I never really had that. My mother and father had to work very hard; and even having the opportunity to do Judo has been the best part of my life. When everything in my life has gone wrong. Judo has always been right. Judo has been my place of solace. Judo has kept me safe. Judo gave me the chance to make friends all over the world. Judo has strengthened my mind, body, and spirit to a level that I can teach others how to be strong as well.
.
Now with Team Jamaica Judo in my sights. I will push myself harder than I ever have to show that I am worthy to hoist the Flag of the Land of my People. I will not give up. A long road ahead and I can not wait to see where this one takes me. .
Thank you all for your support. #jamaicajudo #training #judo #mma #bjj #motivation #fighter #fit #fight #grappling #fitness #workout #gymmotivation

#tbt A quick clip from last season.
When I am not training for Judo. I really enjoy golf. EXCELLENT STRESS RELIEF!!
Just as in Judo, a great deal of coordination is required to make the Ball sail in Golf. Focus, Technique, Finesse, and BIG POWER. And making all those things happen on every tee-off consistently comes with practice. 
How about you? What sports do you cross-train when you are not on your main?
